« After 9-5» for sho (Japanese mouth organ) & electronics (2020-2021). Music: Francesca Le Lohé / Words: Charlotte Wührer
« After 9-5» has been created through an ongoing exchange between Tokyo-based composer, Francesca Le Lohé and Berlin-based writer, Charlotte Wührer. The exchange began when Francesca composed a new short work for solo sho in response to Charlotte’s fiction work “Nine-to-Five”. Charlotte then wrote new text in response to this music, which was then passed back to Francesca to respond to with more new music etc. This “back-and-forth” of inspiration culminated in the piece “After 9-5”.
Their creative partnership lead Francesca and Charlotte to co-found the “Sound & Word Network”; an international collective of composers/sound artists and writers/word artists.
